Braddock Tiles: artist-run ceramics workshop located in a formerly abandoned church in North Braddock, Pennsylvania.
New Orleans Music Box: an ever-evolving musical village that celebrates New Orleans' rich musical and architectural history.
Konbit Shelter: low-cost, sustainable, disaster-resistant homes & community spaces in Komye, Haiti.
